Milwaukee One-Key Asset ID Tags To Track Tools & Equipment

Years ago Milwaukee introduced the Tick as a means to track tools and equipment through that didn’t have One-Key built in via bluetooth connectivity. Now Milwaukee has release One-Key Asset ID tags to further facilitate One-Key tracking of tools and equipment that don’t have One-Key built in.

The Milwaukee One-Key asset ID tags are simple yet durable stickers with a dot code pattern, similar to a QR code that can be scanned and tracked via the One-Key mobile app so you can keep track of your tools via One-Key. The One-Key asset ID tags come in small and large and for plastic and metal surfaces. They will be available in June 2020. Check out the full press release below for all the deets.

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to expand ONE-KEY™, the industry’s largest and most robust asset management platform and tracking and security network, with the introduction of Asset ID Tags. ONE-KEY™ Asset ID Tags allow users to easily manage their tool and equipment inventories. Scanning these durable tags with any camera-equipped mobile device automatically records time and location information within the ONE-KEY™ app, providing users with instant documentation as assets are transferred between jobsites and users.

“Since first launched in 2016, ONE-KEY™ has grown to be the industry’s largest tool and equipment tracking network. With more than 40 connected solutions and counting, we continue to pioneer the evolution of smart tools and equipment. However, many of our users want to be able to take advantage of the ONE-KEY™ inventory management platform even with tools and equipment that are not Bluetooth™ enabled. The TICK™ will remain the ideal Bluetooth™ tracker for larger equipment while these new Asset ID Tags will be a perfect fit for smaller equipment and tools, and for users who don’t require the advanced capabilities of TICK™,” said Andrew Lambert, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.

The Asset ID Tags can be affixed to non-ONE-KEY™ compatible assets to better track movement and flow across jobsites and crews. Using any smart mobile device with an integrated camera and the ONE-KEY™ app installed, users can simply scan the Tags to record time and location data.

Available in both small (0.69” x 1”) and large (1.5” x 2”), the Tags come in sets of up to 200 that are designed to adhere to either plastic or metal surfaces. The Tags made for plastic surfaces, such as power tools, are made with Velvet Lexan, while the Tags made for metal surfaces, such as hand tools, are made with anodized aluminum.

Fully embodying the Milwaukee promise of “Nothing but HEAVY DUTY,” each Tag is built to withstand the harshest jobsite conditions, with resistance to water and chemical exposure, fade-protection from UV light, scratch-resistance, and can maintain adhesion through significant fluctuations in temperature.

Delivering connected solutions, Milwaukee helps trade professionals improve efficiency, smooth timeliness, and reduce risk.
